If you are a person that is good with working with your hands, and good at following instructions, then many of the inspection findings can be done without the need of hiring someone – DIY. If you choose to do some minor plumbing repairs remember to shut off the main valve for the house, or the valves for your particular project. But keep in mind – valves not used for a long time may leak, or break, so be careful. If you choose to do some minor electrical work, be sure that the power to your project is off. Always have a great deal of respect and awareness for electricity.
Perhaps you just don’t have the time, or you are not really good working with your hands, not everyone is, so be honest with yourself. A good handyman is worth his weight in gold! They should be able to do the work of many different trades, thus avoiding minimum charges when utilizing many trades (I.e. plumber, painter, electrician…). You might want to give the handyman you chose a small task, or two, and see how the quality of work performed is before awarding more work. An unqualified handyman can make things worse.
Sometimes it is just prudent to hire a licensed professional, especially when it comes to larger, even dangerous projects (to the novice), such as roofing, structural, and electrical. Projects may need a permit, and the dollar amount may require that a licensed professional be hired by law. Always be sure to do your homework, if someone says there licensed be sure to look up the appropriate state website and verify they are licensed and insured. Always ask for referrals, and it is wise to pay as you go with the project. The less money upfront the better for your financial protection.
